As of right now, it looks like Florida will face Ohio State for the NCAA football championship:
Florida passed Michigan and returned to No. 2 in The Associated Press Top 25 and the coaches' poll on Sunday. While the Gators had a slim lead of three points over Michigan in the AP poll, they were 26 points ahead of the Wolverines in the USA Today poll -- a margin that could help get Florida into the national title game.
The coaches' poll is one of three components used in the Bowl Championship Series standings, along with the Harris poll and a compilation of six computer ratings.A report in the Los Angeles Times, citing a BCS source, said that Florida will indeed be the No. 2 team in the final BCS standings that will be officially announced later Sunday.
Full disclosure, I grew up in Florida and am a diehard Gators fan but this gives me no pleasure. Opinions deciding who plays in a championship game? Please. It is long past time for a playoff.
This is an Open Thread.
